NATION, with new statement: House Moves Closer to Historic Tax Relief for American People, Duncan Says
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC, Laurens County) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the House-Senate Conference Report on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“We have moved one step closer to providing historic tax relief to the American people. Our nation has waited over 30 years for meaningful tax reform, and I am excited that we have accomplished another step in the legislative process today. This bill will make a huge impact on individuals, families, and companies in South Carolina, and now we need the Senate to move this process along by voting on the Conference Report.
“We are on the verge of unleashing the American dream for millions of people in this country. It’s disheartening that the Democrats chose to sit on the sidelines throughout this process and attack a pro-growth, pro-family tax plan that is all about bigger paychecks, higher wages, more jobs, and smaller government.
“I stand committed to my constituents, South Carolina, and the nation, and I will continue to work on getting this tax reform package across the finish line. Let’s finish the job!”
UPDATED TODAY: House and Senate Send Historic Tax Reform Legislation to White House
Washington, D.C. – Today (Dec. 21), Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC, 3rd District, Laurens County) praised the House and Senate for passing sweeping tax reform for the American people:
“This is a historic day in America! A unified Congress has passed an overhaul of the tax code to finally give tax relief to individuals, families, and businesses across our nation. For far too long, the tax code has stifled innovation and investment, burdened Main Street, and kept individuals and families from getting ahead. The American people recognized this and spoke with a loud voice in November 2016.
“I am thrilled that the legislation is now on its way to the White House for President Trump’s signature. This has been over 30 years in the making, and we are delivering on a key promise to the American people – we are Making America Great Again!”
